    Thanks ladies!
    We have a few kids coming 3 girls 12 16 & 15 I got jewelry making kits from the dollar store that are super cute and beachy.. I got the braclet and necklace.. both for a buck each. I did get the sudko books and inflatable beach balls. Oh and sparkle nail polish with packaged single polish remover wipes.
    Boys where tricky.. 18 and my son 20... water guns, small footballs, floresent sunscreen for their nose (both big volleyball players)
    FI suggested playboy mag and they'd be smiling the whole vacation.. I shook my head to that one.

    good luck

        Hey girls,

        Great thread! Has anyone included personalized beach towels? If so where did you get them from and how much?

          This is a great thread. I will begin preparing my OOT within a few months. I pretty much have an idea as to what I want to do, but this thread gave me great ideas. I was originally planning on buying those canvas?? bags and personalizing them, or using those (not sure what they are called)....the bags that have string and you can pull the opening shut and wear it over your shoulder. I hope I explained that well!
          Great ideas and thank you!

            Ok, so I LOOOVE the idea of a "meet the guests" packet.

            Out of curiosity - how did you organize these? By family, last name, etc.?

            Also, I'm assuming you put a picture and a quick sentence or two about the person. How long did this take? Seems like it would be a pretty big project! We're expecting over 100 guests but I think I really want to do this!!

              My Big Hits
              The actual bags (I used the hibiscus bags from OTC)
              Snack bags
              Hand Sanitizer
              Brochure with Wedding day itinerary.
              Keycard holders

              Everything else lol
              Homemade soaps
              mugs (we were on an 8 day cruise so in retrospect the mugs wer useless bc ppl were always ordering alcoholic beverages so they didn't need the mug and then there were times when I wanted to use my mug but bc we had plans after the meals I didn't want to lug it around)

                    VistaPrint has cyber Monday sales which are great. does anyone know if they'll have anything like this again? I ordered one free tote to see what it'll look like but I am scared that my tote won't arrive before this sale is over. Do you know if they'll have a christmas or new year huge sale again?
